Yesterday I did some more experiments with the touch control for reprap (see my last post). This time I added some simple code for extrusion. As you see on the picture I was able to draw my initials.
we want code!!!. My xoom is really anxious to play with the printer!
Is there any practical use to this?
This is pretty cool. I saw an arduino post that could work similarly.
Practical use could be possible calibration…
other than 3D sketching ? Maybe calibration, but currently it is hard to draw a straight line not to mention aligning the 2nd layer to the 1st. I guess some “snap to grid” function is needed to make it useful.
I had the idea to interact with a nunchuck motion sensor so it would be x,y and z that way
